In this cohort study we examined whether gender, age at onset, observation time or human papillomavirus (HPV) genotype are risk factors for an aggressive clinical course in Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis (RRP). Clinical data from patient records comprised gender, age at onset, date of first endolaryngeal procedure with biopsy, date of last follow-up,(More)
Human papillomavirus (HPV) has been linked to oropharyngeal carcinomas, but its role in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) is not clear. A prospective multicenter study based on known tumor-cell percentage of fresh frozen carcinoma biopsies was established to determine the HPV prevalence. Moreover risk factors such as smoking, alcohol abuse, chronic(More)
Patients with recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP) in Norway treated between 1987 and 2009 were recruited to this cohort study. They were followed from disease onset and data recorded until January 2012. Here, we describe the distribution of human papillomavirus (HPV) genotypes, the prevalence of multiple HPV infections, and the risk of high-grade(More)
To determine quality of life (QoL) in individuals with dysphagia related to identified Zenker’s diverticulum before (T1) and one year after undergoing endoscopic laser diverticulotomy surgery (T2). A total of 43 individuals (18 women and 25 men) were included at T1 and 37 of these responded at T2 (13 women and 24 men). Health-related QoL (HRQoL) was(More)
Both radiotherapy and laser surgery give excellent results in the treatment of T1a glottic carcinoma. In this study, we compared the outcome of these treatment options. Demographic details and continuous follow-up with exact cause of death have been recorded prospectively for 351 patients with T1a glottic carcinoma at a tertiary referral centre in two(More)

Cricopharyngeal dysfunction may be caused by a central or peripheral nerve disease, a muscular disease, previous neck surgery or it may be idiopathic. The treatment may be a myotomy of the cricopharyngeal muscle carried out externally or endoscopically. Since 1995 we have treated 17 patients with endoscopic myotomy of the cricopharyngeal muscle with the CO2(More)
OBJECTIVES To calculate recurrence, mortality and complication rates and evaluate postoperative voice quality after laser resection of T(1a) glottic carcinoma. MATERIAL AND METHODS Since 1995 we have treated 118 patients with a T(1a) glottic carcinoma with laser surgery. In order to evaluate postoperative voice quality, patients who were alive and free of(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS The incidence of genital infections, cervical cancer, and oropharyngeal cancer induced by human papillomaviruses (HPV) is increasing in Western countries. Primarily, this study was conducted to estimate the incidence rate of recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP) in juveniles and adults in two Norwegian subpopulations for each year(More)
Since 1995 patients with T1a glottic carcinomas have been treated with laser surgery at the Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Rikshospitalet in Oslo. During this period we have in many cases noticed an inconsistency between the clinical outcome and the histopathological report describing that the resection margins were not free. We wanted to investigate(More)
The standard treatment for patients with T1a vocal cord cancer has been radiotherapy. From October 1995 selected patients have undergone laser surgery and up until March 1997 we had treated 16 patients. The results so far have been satisfactory with only one recurrence. Some of the patients have experienced a slight to moderate degree of hoarseness(More)
